Nexit – what now for Plymouth and the south west?
Wed 20 July 2016, 18:00 – 21:00 BST
As we enter Brexit Britain what next for Plymouth and the South West? With Molly Scott Cato MEP and John Harris, political and culture writer for The Guardian
Politics is in crisis and the repercussions from the result of the referendum are being felt socially, politically and economically. For many people, it feels like the country is being torn apart.
If we want a politics and economy that puts all of us first, it's time to come together and start building alliances. We need a democracy that listens and responds, that puts the people in control. We will not get there by shutting people out and perpetuating divisions, but by building bridges, alliances and common cause.
Amid the current political chaos in Westminster, which lacks leadership, and a plan, life in our neighbourhoods goes on. How can we as people, neighbours, business and organisations be proactive, focus on pressing issues and flip the debate to one that builds a more equal, sustainable and democratic society?
This event will explore ways to create more progressive partnerships at a local and regional level. What might they look like? Where do we start? Are the seismic shifts surrounding us creating new opportunities? What can we do to make a difference?
Helping us explore the issues will be South West Green MEP Molly Scott-Cato; Guardian Political and Culture Journalist John Harris and others tbc, but most importantly, it is an opportunity for all of us to meet, talk and start to find a way forward. As always a cash bar with food and drinks will be available.
